Philip K DickValis ... Book
Gollancz (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $5.99 12.99
One of the most important works from the later years of Philip K Dick – written right near the end of his too-short career, and a rich narrative expression of the personal issues that Dick was struggling with at the time! Valis stands for Vast Active Living Intelligence System – a cosmic force from beyond that communicates with messianic power, and tears apart the fragile reality of the characters in the book! Definitely PKD at his trippiest – right down to all the imagined scripture that informs the narrative, and seems to ground it in a possible sense of historicity. 271 pages, softcover. Book

Forbidden WorldsForbidden Worlds Collected Works Vol 4 – July 1953 to January 1954 – Issues 19-25 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy Book ... $9.99 47.99
Dig creepy comics? This book is full of them – a wealth of wonderful issues of the legendary Forbidden Worlds series from the 50s – a groundbreaking publication that set a whole new standard for horror and sci fi stories at the time – and a great companion to the legendary Adventures Into The Unknown, also from the same publisher! The volume is very well done – and features rare 50s comics in very vivid color – filled with stories of ghouls, demons, spirits, and other supernatural forces – all penned at the very high ACG level – which means thoughtful plotting, and a real sense of story structure. Even the original ads and text pages are included – and these issues feature artwork from Bob Forgione, George Klein, Edvard Moritz, Harry Lazarus, Al Wenzel, Ken Bald, and others. 288 pages, hardcover, and full color!

HeapHeap Vol 2 – June 1948 to December 1950 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy Book ... $9.99 47.99
One of the coolest comic features of the 40s – and one that had a surprisingly long life too – born first in the pages of Airboy Comics, but more than enough of a legend on its own! The Heap is a kind of man/monster figure that predates Swamp Thing or Man Thing by decades – an early, and surprisingly strong attempt at this sort of character – born in the swamp during WWII, but served up here in stories that stretch way past that initial moment – with great reproductions of the rare issues in which he appeared – all in full color, on heavy white paper, wrapped up in a solid hardcover volume! Marvel Comics legend Roy Thomas presents the material – and artists in this volume include Carmine Infantino, John Belfi, Leonard Starr, Paul Reinman, Ernest Schroeder, and others. 240 pages, hardcover, and in full color.
